    I dont know the answer but I just did it.

    As soon as I entered my move, (I was up a rook for pawn btw) I was like..."was his knight attacking my queen". Sure enough it was. Im in for the long haul now. Maybe I will get lucky and he just wont see it.

    Been there, done that... Game 1411362
    I still managed to win in the end, but it's not a game I am proud of...

    There is a certain artistry in dropping a Q.
    Dropping a rook is child's play. I'm not even going to bother looking.

    It usually happens when I'm looking at a promising line & get so engrossed that I forget to remember to check the threats on the last move or do a last second "sanity check".
